Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with butter.
step 2
Melt the Butter (2 Tbsp) and Unsweetened Chocolate (1/3 cup) together. I do this in a microwave using a microwave-safe dish.
step 3
In a separate saucepan, heat Buttermilk (2 cups) gently until just a little warmer than body temperature - being careful not to boil or cook it. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups), Brown Sugar (1 cup), Baking Powder (1 Tbsp), Baking Soda (1 tsp), and Salt (as needed). Mix well, making as uniform a mixture as possible.

step 7
Pour on the boiling Water (2 1/2 cups). It will look terrible, and you will not believe you are actually doing this, but try to persevere.

Place immediately in the preheated oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the center is firm to the touch.

Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Invert each serving on a plate so that the fudge sauce on the bottom becomes a topping. Serve hot or at room temperature.
